The 2013 NBA draft is still more than two months away, but with the Portland Trail Blazers out of the playoffs fans are anxiously anticipating the next draft pick. Sean Deveney of Sporting News rolled out his 2013 mock draft projecting all 30 selections in the first round. Deveney sees UCLA's Shabazz Muhammad landing with the Trail Blazers at No. 10. Muhammad, a 6-foot-6 wing, averaged 17.9 points in his lone season at UCLA and was once projected as a sure-fire Top 5 pick by most experts. After a solid, but not dominant, college season Muhammad has slipped to the latter half of the lottery according to many projections. Muhammad has shown a knack for scoring, but there is concern that his game is too one dimensional.
